The Pro Bono Probate Settlement Program provides parties with pending probate matters an opportunity to resolve their cases with the assistance of experienced attorney volunteers screened and selected by a committee of local bar associations. If the parties and the assigned judge believe a settlement conference would be helpful, the parties will then be directed to reserve a date by utilizing the reservation book on the clerk’s desk in Department 5. The program operates on Tuesdays and Thursdays mornings, with all sessions commencing promptly at 8:30 a.m.

To serve as a Probate Settlement Officer, the attorney must have at least five years of probate experience and complete the attorney application and forward the completed form to probatecommittee@lists.sfvba.org.
